The White Veil; A Bridal Gift. Elegantly Illustrated.

Philadelphia: E. H. Butler & Co., 1854. Hardcover. 324p., illustrated with numerous saccharine steel engravings, tissue-guarded, a hardbound gift item in 8.5x6.5 inch white leather boards gilt, pressed-calf we think, ruled and decorated in gilt. The hide is a well-tanned hide, and where the pressed surfaces are abraded or toned or scuffed, the leather beneath remains a light cream-color. Hinges are sound, the pale yellow endsheets are a bit aged but unmarked, plates and tissues undamaged, a good to very good copy of a book to present to a maiden about to take vows. The editor attempts touches of realism while embracing ideal affections.
